Down Another Pound

Monday, September 10, 2012

So, I missed weigh in last week, just too much going on with my parents here. I'm down another pound, which surprises me a little seeing as we went to two fests, out to dinner and had a birthday party for my stepfather all within the last week and a half. Look at me go, literally!

Slipped A Little

Saturday, September 01, 2012

Well, I haven't made the best food choices the past two days, but I'm ok with that. Today is a new day and I'm ready to get back on track and do this thing!

Well, maybe after lunch, my boyfriend is taking us out so he can meet the P's on neutral territory. lol

    Keep tracking- one slip is just that - not the end of your journey. Just get back on the horse, you can do it. emoticon emoticon

Skinny....me?

Friday, August 31, 2012

My parents came in from Arizona yesterday. I haven't seen them in over a year and was about 40 lbs heavier the last time they saw me. After the initial hugs and small talk, my mom stepped back and looked at me and said, "You're skinny." I'm far from being skinny but that was by far the best compliment I have gotten!

Next up is having them meet my boyfriend. They've heard a lot about him and he is very good to me so I'm not worried.

Getting Ready For My Parents

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

My parents will be here tomorrow. I haven't seen them in over a year and I'm excited because I was about 40 lbs heavier the last time they were here. My mom and I have struggled with our weight for many years. Right before she moved to Arizona eight years ago she started losing weight and got down to about the size I am now. I was very proud of her and a little jealous that I was still struggling so much. I can't wait until she sees me now!

It will be harder to stay on track while they are here, but they both know how hard it was/is to lose weight so I know they will be supportive about my food choices.

The big test is going to be getting through our pot luck at work today without doing too much damage.

    those pot luck meals are tough! I usually get a huge pile of salad or raw veggies or some other healthy option, then just a taste of the other stuff. And I always bring something healthy so I know I'll have something I can eat!

hope you have a great visit with your folks

A Small Victory

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

I had weigh in this morning and lost 4 lbs. I didn't expect that because I did make some bad food choices at dinner Sunday.

My boyfriend comes from a very large family and they get together every Sunday for dinner. (Some of them, not all but there is usually anywhere from 12-18 people there.) They love my cooking and I have become the official Sunday dinner cook. I'm very honored and flattered and love cooking for large crowds but it's hard to cook something everyone will like, although I haven't had that problem yet, they have loved everything so far. I made homemade enchiladas and Spanish rice which I did eat, but this time I limited myself to one small portion and not only was still very satisfied but full too.

Moral of the story is, you don't have to cut out all of the foods you love. The key is learning proper portion control and moderation. I even splurged on a small piece of the Cherry Almond bars I made. They have oatmeal and almonds in them, that means they have to be good for you...right? emoticon

I've been fluctuating between 181 and 185 for the last few weeks so I'm not super excited just yet, but a loss is a loss and I'm happy with that.

Hope you all had a good weekend.
